I love the art style of Arcana Comics’ Clockwork Girl, and the story is very good too.
Clockwork Girl tells the tale of a nameless robot girl who has recently been given the gift of life from her creator. While she explores the wonders of an ordinary world she meets an amazing mutant boy and they share a friendship that must overcome their warring families. Created by Sean Oâ€™Reilly and Kevin Hanna, the series was the first release from Arcanaâ€™s all ages division, Arcana Kids. Debuting in July 2007 the book received critical acclaim for its astounding artwork and timeless love story.
For a while Arcana has had plans to develop an animated feature based on the title, but needed funding. The comapny has announced that Telefilm Canada has stepped up with the money needed for the animated flick.
When recently asked about the Clockwork Girl film, co-creator Kevin Hanna said in a prepared statement, â€œI’m not sure how much I can say, other then I am thrilled that things are going as well as I ever hoped they could be.Â Working in Hollywood, I know that adaptations are a gamble that often taint the source material.Â So far everything is going right with Clockwork Girl, the people involved really understand the spirit of the book and the characters. I think fans of the book will be very happy with where this ends up.â€
